CALCULATION OF BROKEN ICE RESISTANCE BASED ON MODEL TESTING

A series of tests was performed on models of icebreakers and cargo ships in open water and in broken ice. The results of the broken ice tests are tabulated. The main purpose of the evaluation of the experimental results was to establish relationships between ice resistance, width of channel and ice parameters. The method of predicting resistance of ships in broken ice provides adequate information for most calculations. The calculation method and the model test results have been verified by full scale test.
